Mega cozy and clean place
This place is one of the best guest houses We have ever been! The location it a bit separate from main George Town street, like 3 min walking, what is perfect actually. It is decorated with taste and effort, they take care of every detail, all you need is there from clean shoes to go in the toilet or shower to hair dryer and all you need in the kitchen, water to refills, washing machine to use. Really amazing. The owner May is really helpful and will assess you in anything you need. When you arrive they will give you some tips about the city. They are really nice and kind people. The price just adjust to what you get. So it is more like a hotel with a sensation of guest house. I recommend 100% Just go and enjoy. Thanks for everything May!

Lovely Stay
As long as you are happy with, and are respectful to the quiet rule, there is no reason why you shouldn't have a really nice stay here. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Showers are decent and clean also. The courtyard in the centre is really pretty and smells lovely every time you come in. Lady at reception gives you a good overview of Georgetown when you get there, and although she isn't in all the time, she is more than willing to help when she is. She will happily give you her number so you can WhatsApp her as well. Free laundry and a kitchen with enough facilities. This place is great. A hidden gem. It was also perfect for us as it was only a 10 minute walk to Chulia Street where, on a night, there was plenty to entertain us. From street food, to restaurants, bars, live music and nightclubs. All very reasonably priced.

Rustic style guesthouse!
The design of the guesthouse is really cool and the location is very convenient to must sees or dos. The rooms are neat and cosy, the only thing is that the room with the private toilet doesn't have a window. Everything apart from this was great!

Great Location
We stayed here for 2 nights during the Georgetown Literary Fest. I wanted to try staying in different parts of Georgetown whenever I am there so this time, I chose Lebuh Melayu. Did not disappoint. We took the private room with ensuite. No view or windows but I had no issue with that as May had made it clear when we booked it. It would smell a bit musty everytime we come back but 5 mins of the AC and it's sorted. Bed was comfortable and I appreciated the ensuite. What I particularly like is the location. Perfect for breakfasts especially with the two kopitiams in the corner. Do try the duck noodle soup as well as the char kuey tiaw.

Lovely Guesthouse
We stayed for 5 nights in total and really enjoyed our stay. Free use of the washing machine and unlimited coffee and tea was great. The room and shared bathroom was very clean. The location is great, and it is easy to walk to Chinatown and Little India as well as the bus station. The owner is very helpful and gave us some good food tips around the town. Our room was at the front of the property and could a little noisy from the street but nothing to complain about. You could hear noise from the adjacent rooms and from the common area, but overall people were respectful and kept the noise down after 11pm. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend.
